Professional Level Long Neck Banjo, White Ladye Tone Ring.

Look no further than this professional level long neck banjo ideal for the folk musician. Tuned 1-1/2 steps lower than a standard 5-string banjo, the WL-250LN is set up for the best singing keys.  Specs are equal to the popular Gold Tone WL-250 with the addition of three extra frets allowing the banjo to be tuned to EBEG#B.

The WL-250LN provides a plunky yet punchy tone well-suited for old time and folk music. This model features an accurate replica of the vintage and highly sought after 3-part White Ladye tone ring coupled with a 1/2″ rim for maximum air chamber volume. Other features include a maple neck and bound ebony fingerboard with cloud inlays, double adjusting truss rod, vintage heel design, GT Master planetary tuners, 11” Renaissance head, no-knot tailpiece, and dual coordinator rods for a solid neck fit and easy adjustment capabilities.  Final assembly and complete setup performed at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida.

Our highly sought after open back banjo has remarkable tone and exquisite cosmetics. Check out the open back review by the Banjo Newsletter!
